To each there own but I will not be going back to this yogart. I usually get Beatrice yogart as it is 2.99 at No Frills and it tastes great to me and my DH So I guess when you got something good don't change it lol.

    Thanks for reading!

    -Never again! But the cow is cute on the front lol
    I buy various brands and types of yogurt based on the sales. I personally like astro original but prefer the balkan. (I like my yogurt with very few ingrdients, more natural, without artificial sweetners, thickeners and additives I can't pronounce) That being said I'm not that picky in general.

    p.s - The reason it is a bit more watery is because unlike the majority of competitors they don't add gelatin to their products. This is smart on their part because some people can't consume gelatin because it's a pork product. (so they get a corner of the market)

    Cheers!

    Snip.

    Have you tried Yoptimal yogurt yet? So good - thick and creamy. I especially like the Cranberry/Raspberry one - it's almost like ice cream!

    I also really like the Liberté Greek Yogurt - I mix the plain Greek yogurt with whatever flavoured yogurt I have bought on sale, makes it really creamy without being too sweet (which I find a lot of pre-flavored yogurts to be)...

    The only yogurt my son will eat is the Astro Balkan fruit bottom. He doesn't even care for yogurt tubes. I like to eat from the top down and I never mix it. My only complaint is the quality of the "fruit". It could consist of fruit chunks rather than a fruity sauce. It is still good!

    I like Source yogurt, although i shake it before I open it. I hate that gelatinous texture when it is first opened if I don't shake it.

    I didn't mind the Astro Original yogurt, myself. But my one daughter hated it. As in, she cried if I bought "the cow yogurt"...which is what she called it because of the picture on the box.

    Good thing too. My other daughter had a weird kind of reaction to the stuff--whenever she ate it, she developed horrible B.O.
    At the time, she was 7 years old so BO should definitely not be happening yet! It was only ever that particular yogurt that was a problem. She ate all other varieties and brands with no issues. Odd.

    That is one that I bought in the past; yuck. I don't know how much money I've
    wasted trying to find a yogurt I can eat that has NO sour smell or taste.

    All you yogurt lovers will not understand my aversion to the smell and taste of so
    many brands. (Reminds me of milk gone bad)

    Finally Finally Finally - found 2 that I absolutely love -

    Yoplait Source 0% fat; all flavors & Danone Silhouette specially Capuccino yumm


    Can you recommend any other brand similar to the ones listed above?
